\ SALUTE of 21 guns could not have been more
-*■*- stimulating Ilian the stirring rally that bade
farewell and good luck to Oregon’s undefeated foot
ball team Wednesday night.
It was a demonstration of an awakening stu

a fighting, winning squad. Rarely in past years
has a rally committee functioned so efficiently, and
rarely have students responded so spontaneously
Oregon goes into the U. C. L. A. game with a
new confidence and a new determination. For the
first time in years, It realiy looks as if Oregon has
a fighting chance for a Pacific Coast conference
championship U. - C. L. A. has been beaten and
can be beaten again. Southern California has been
tied and can be beaten. And that fiery last-half
drive against Washington gives promise that Ore

It will take a very maximum of support to keep
the morale of the team at its present high pitch.
Don’t be content with the rally; send telegrams to
Prink Callison’s men in Los Angeles—let them
know that there has been no waning of that fine
loyalty demonstrated Wednesday.
RULES AND REGULATIONS
"ITTE at Oregon who chafe at the prickly hedge
’ ’ of rules, regulations and paternalistic ma
chinery which surround us and there seem to be
an unusually large number of such chafers on the
Oregon campus might be surprised to learn how
lenient University authorities really arc, in com
parison with the martinets who stand in loco
parentis at other institutions.
From The American Scholar we quote the fol
lowing list of weird tabus at various American uni
“Arkansas college demands that 'all articles,
including trunks, should be plainly marked with
the owner’s name (twice on the outside and
once on the inside).’’’
"At Beloit college a girl may not take a
bath after 10:30 p. m. witho’ut suffering de
merits. Further demerits threaten the Beloit
girl who wears mules 'or any but slippers with
soft soles throughout the building after the re
tiring bell.' ”
“At Vassar ‘no one may ride with a man
without special permission from the warden.
This Includes fathers'And brothers.’”
The following is from the bulletin of an un
named college: “The College believes that the use
of tobacco in any form is injurious to the user. The
management is aware of the fact that many of the
best citizens use tobacco, but it does not believe
that the using of it makes them better Christians
or citizens. , . . Its use on the college campus will
not be tolerated at all. No student who uses to
bacco will be permitted to represent the College in
any public way.”
Bluefield college in West Virginia “does not ap
prove of certain forms of social activity such as
dancing and the playing of spot cards.”
Some of the rules are so ludicrous as to invite
Vfonderment at the naivete of those who expounded
them. For example:
Wellesley rules that “No person may stand up
in a canoe.”
Brigham Young university “insists that boys
and girls be housed separately."
Corner girls may not appear “in public with
Of course we at Oregon have a few weird ones.
We make it an offense punishable by forfeiture of
driving privileges to drive without a windshield
sticker on the car. dust get a sticker and you can
use your car for purposes as unholy as you wish,
as long as you don’t c',:ish with city ordinances.
Girls must be in their sororities or dormitories
by 10:30. Men can come in at 3 a. m. or not at all.
And we must not forget the regulation which
surrounds the University with an anti-beer zone.
A block outside the zone you can drink beer until
We believe that we have established our point
(by shameless filching of the material so painstak
ingly compiled by the writer for The American
Scholar) that the regulations at the University of
Oregon could be much v/orse. But for pure aryl
unadulterated inconsistency, we’re inclined to think
that Oregon sets a high and shining mark.
THE BAROMETER SPEAKS UP
IN one of the cleverest editorials we have read in
the Oregon State Barometer in the four years
that we have been observing that newspaper—and
an editorial tl(at we are pleased to reprint in our
own columns—the suggestion is made that since
the Emerald, among “other elements” at the Uni
versity of Oregon, seems distressed at the prox
imity of administrative authority, it might be
pleasing both to the Emerald and to the Barometer
to have the headquarters of the system of higher
education and the chancellor’s office transferred to
the northern campus. The Barometer even offers
to aid the Emerald if such a crusade be launched,
in spite of the Barometer's hoary tradition of re
maining content with the status quo.
While the Emerald is reasonably sure that it
has never intimated the slightest disLress over the
physical proximity of the administrative offices,
the Barometer has quite obviously scored when it
points out that the recommendation of the com
mittee on unification called for the location of the
headquarters of the state system in Corvallis.
More and more fully the paper recommendations
of the federal survey committee are being trans
lated into belated action—the latest concession to
the original plan being the reorganization of the
bookkeeping system at Oregon State college to
place it in uniformity with the rest of the state’s
The Emerald naturally does not presume to sup
pose that it is speaking for the rest of the campus,
but it does feel, as a matter of fact, that it would
not be a bad idea to go the whole way in this mat
ter of carrying out the original plans of the survey
This would, of course, entgil the selection of a
president to head each institution in the state sys
tem, working under the supervision of the chan
On Other Campuses
A Barometer-Emerald Crusade? . . .
TT becomes increasingly apparent that certain ele
ments at the University of Oregon, particularly
the Emerald, are distressed beyond words and re
peatedly moved to tears over the close proximity
of administrative authority. The Emerald cries
out in horror against any infringement of academic
freedom, and sees political machinations in every
official move, even in the transfer of a dean's of
fice from one building to another.
Now the Barometer is indeed pained at this
acute distress of a valued contemporary and is
ready with a suggestion for relieving the unfortu
nate situation. Inasmuch as the Emerald is most
happy when engaged in a crusade, the Barometer
suggests for its consideration:
In one of the past reports of a committee of
the board of higher education the committee on
unification or something of the sort will be found
the recommendation that when the unified system
of higher education is finally set up it will doubt
less he advisable to establish the headquarters of
the system and the chancellor's office at Corvallis,
that being the most centrally located campus.
Behold now how Eugene has been imposed upon!
Here this despised emblem of authority, the head
quarters of the SYSTEM, has been thrust within
her cloistered walls of academic learning! Let the
Emerald organize a delegation or a pilgrimage, ap
pear before the board and demand that this fester
ing political sore be removed from the sacred body
! of the university and be placed where the board
said it should be in the less cultured confines of
We will go even further. If the Emerald,will
see the merit in this suggestion and start such a
crusade, the Barometer will join it. Oregon State

Along with the rest of the cam
pus activities, student church
groups are in full sway with their
programs for the ensuing year.
Koine of the groups have chosen
for their subjects of discussion,
the age old argument of whether
science does conflict with religion,
and it usually is found that mis
conceptions of both are the fric
tions that arise between the two
factors. Other groups are com
paring some of the biblical char
acters with those of the present
day. Another group is studying
i the trend of events of the biblietil
I period and the modern era.
With Halloween around the cor
ner, various groups are giving
parties tonight and next Saturday
evening. An invitation has been

Ethics of Self-Discipline ' is the

The Way to Disarmament
By WARREN D. SMITH,
Head of Geography and Geology
TVTOT being a “practical politi
cian’’ but just another one of
those “crazy scientists” my opin
ion with regard to this subject
may not be very enlightening, but
I can not help feeling that sooner
or later the scientists will have to
take over the job of straightening
out this old world before the po
litical racketeers completely wreck
The editorials and the news sto
ries in the press generally express
deep concern over Germany’s atti
tude toward the matter of disarm
ament and the League. As much
as I have been inclined to blame
Germany for her pig-headedness
in the past, and although I think
Hitler the arch demagogue of
modern times, with his foolish
talk about the "Aryan Race,” I
think v/e ought to be rational
about the whole war and peace
business. We were a party to an
impossible peace treaty at Ver
sailles. Where would the South
and the country as a whole be to
day if the North after the Civil
war had imposed a huge indemnity
upon the Southerners ? Although
not a partisan on the side of Ger
many, I am of the opinion that
the Allies, and France in particu
lar, need radically to change their
attitude or there will be another
explosion in Europe.
Later we tried to get the wide
world to come into a League of
Nations and then repudiated our
own creation. We allowed a little
group of “willful, selfish senators”
to throw a monkey wrench into
our civilization. And now a World
Economic Conference fails, for
which we were not primarily to
blame, but whose utter futility we
might have mitigated somewhat
by a more international grasp of
the situation. How can anyone be
so lacking in knowledge of how
the world really is run as to think
that the nations can disarm before
the causes of war a.re removed!
Economic conflicts and fighting
with gun powder and gas are
merely different phases of war.
Much of business, until the N. R.
A. came upon the scene, has been
war, ruthless and pitiless. Our
much vaunted “rugged individual
ism” meant often times the right
to .destroy the other fellow’s busi
ness, and it was thought to be
smart to be able to do it. This is
not an indictment of all men in
business, but of the competitive
system, which on a big interna
tional scale breeds wars. If the
nations really want peace they
should stop making gestures and
do something in the way of re
moving the pernicious barriers to
international cooperation. Simply
ballyhooing for peace sounds silly.
If we want to get out of the
world muck we are wallowing in
at present, it seems to me we must
do something like the following
and be quick about it:
1. Join the League of Nations
and World Court. If we refuse \
to join the League, why blame j
Germany and Japan for leaving I
2. Revise the Versailles treaty.
If we refuse to do this we have
no right to complain about the
3. Pool the war debts and di
vide the losses on some basis com
mensurate with the individual na
tion’s resources and ability to sus
tain a loss.
4. Agree upon a stabilized world
dollar. Unstable money is pie for
gamblers in exchange, but is diffi
cult for legitimate business.’
5. Establish a permanent world
economic committee to consider all
questions of tariffs, embargoes,
shipping tolls, communications,
Perhaps after some, or all, of
these things are done, it may be
possible to talk about disarma
ment with some prospects for suc
cess. To a scientist the present
conferences appear to be foolish
and a dreadful waste of time, en
ergy and money. Selfish national
ism must soon run its course and
give way to enlightened interna
tionalism, or we shall enter an
other Dark Age. To a scientist
one of the most damnable things
in the world today is sc-called “po
litical expediency”—nothing is set
tled until it is settled rightly. The
history of the western nations fol
lowing the World war appears to

sors has directed us to present a
statement of this situation to you,
md to express their concurrence
in the statements contained in a
letter of September 7, 1933, on
this subject written to you on be
half of the American Civil Liber
ties union by Harry F. Ward, Ar
thur Garfield Hays, and Roger
Baldwin. In particular we are re
quested to urge the administration
to take the following action, as
described in the letter already re
1. To revise completely the exe
cutive order so that consuls may
grant visas to bona-fide political
Dr religious refugees wherever
convinced that they will not be
come publifc charges. Applicants
should be advised of the provisions
for obtaining bonds put up by rela
tives or friends in the United
States to insure against ^ieir be
aming public charges. Such bonds,
with sufficient funds for ocean
passage, ought to suffice to obtain
2. To advise American consuls
both in Germany and outside, of
fhis change in the executive order.
Many of the German refugees are
low living in other countries of
Europe. The notice of consuls
should not be confined to any one
irea, nor apply to Germans only.
3. To advise consuls that the
requirement of law (Section 7C,
Immigration Act, 1924) for police
certificates of good character cov
ering five years, cannot be applied
to most of these political and re
ligious refugees, who cannot get
them, particularly those who have
left Germany. The law itself re
quires them only where available.
Affidavits of good character can.
be substituted for them and still
comply with the letter and spirit
Df the law.
4. To call the attention of the
consuls to the special claims in law
Df political and religious refugees
to asylum in the United States.
We sincerely believe that by tak
ng such patently humanitarian ac
tion, the administration will also
be acting in the best interests of i
the people of this country.
